No. 20 GW Men's Squash Topped by No. 17 Middlebury, 7-2
Colonials Will No. 18 Wesleyan in Consolation Finals
Feb. 15, 2014
BOSTON, Mass. - The No. 20 George Washington men's squash team won the top two matches on the ladder but fell to No. 17 Middlebury, 7-2, on Saturday afternoon in the semifinals of the Summers Cup (C-Division) at the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Nationals at Harvard University's Murr Center.
De Frutos, playing at No. 1, prevailed in five sets despite being forced to default the opening frame after suffering an injury. The Bogota, Colombia, native exceeded the allotted stoppage time for an injury and as a result forfeited the set. Despite the setback, de Frutos won the next two sets before prevailing in five over Parker Hurst, def., 11-5, 11-8, 9-11, 13-11.
Valderrama rallied from a 2-0 hole to defeat Andrew Jung in five sets at No. 2, 7-11, 9-11, 11-6, 11-5, 13-11 to clinch the Colonials' first victory of the day.
Sophomore James Reiss was pushed to five sets after holding a 2-1 advantage but ultimately fell to Andrew Cadreibred at No. 3, 12-10, 6-11, 11-6, 5-11, 1-11.
The Colonials will face No. 18 Wesleyan in the Consolation Finals on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. at Northeastern University's Badger & Rosen Squashbusters Center.
The teams last met at last year's CSA Team Nationals, with the Cardinals prevailing, 5-4. Four members of this year's team played in the last meeting, with then-freshmen James Reiss and Reid Breck registering victories.
